It's been a very long time since I've done any kind of painting. Well this is not what I consider my best work it was fun for the first time in years. If you're looking at it on a cell phone it may show up way brighter than it what it really is.

This is pastel on a watercolor underpainting.

Thanks for looking.

Wow I love this. Great composition with the strong lines and shapes and I just love all that colour. I hope we are going to see more :)

That's beautiful work Sandra, how much underpainting did you do.
I have cropped and squared a copy if you would like me to post it.

Thank you! It was just one layer of watercolor, I did the entire picture then I start layering pastels with Qtips. I know people think I'm crazy but it's how I do it. I'm horrible at taking pictures of it, there's always a glare in some spot.

Thanks so much....The top two paintings on the main page of my website are what I consider my best so far. It could be that I don't feel this ones good enough because it's my first in a few years of not doing any artwork at all. :wave:

Sandra, you had better get stuck in and do more like this terrific colourful painting. Don't hide your talent under a bushel any longer. Looking forward to more of your work.
